Project Naptha Text on Image Recognitation Technology Comes to Firefox

Friday, September 26th, 2014

The ability to recognize text in images certainly has come a long way since the old OCR technology of the 2000’s.

Project Naptha is without doubt one of the coolest extensions for the Google Chrome web browser. It enables you to select text on images to copy it to the clipboard. That’s great if you need access to that text, for instance to paste it in an email or a social media website, or to edit it in a text editor. While it is possible to copy the text manually, it may take quite some time depending on the length of the text.
